HC Deb 27 March 1885 vol 296 c837

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Home Department, Why no Copies of the Report of the Trawling Commission, printed without the evidence, were circulated among Members, according to the usual custom, in anticipation of the Report with evidence; and, whether Copies of the Report only, without the evidence, will be prepared for the use of the public, who may not want the evidence?


in reply, said, he was informed that it was not the usual custom to circulate Reports without the Evidence, though it was occasionally done; but, so far as the present case was concerned, the Stationery Department were instructed to issue the Report of the Trawling Commission in a small volume, and to sell it to the public at a very small sum.
